For many people, going to the gym can be as much for the sake of exercising the body as it is for engaging in the social atmosphere of the club. This can provide both a positive and negative aspect for individuals who are trying to get in shape and take care of their health.
On the up side, many studies show that people who work out in groups are more likely to stick with a program and to push themselves to maintain better wellness. The negative aspects of the social implications at the gym include feelings of self-consciousness or discomfort that can arise from feeling as though others are scrutinizing appearance and performance.
All The Little Things
This sense of apprehension that can prevent people from utilizing the gym can also extend to minor imperfections that affect self-esteem. People who have varicose veins or spider veins on their legs, hands, and feet may avoid the gym setting since they are embarrassed about this appearance. The greater concern can be that this factor is preventing the individual from gaining the full benefits of working out and from having the support of others at the gym who are also engaged in behaviors of wellness.
While physical health is important, emotional health is also a factor in total wellness. At Sutton Place Laser Vein Care, we often find that improving emotional wellbeing can be as simple as remedying varicose veins. Reducing the visual impact of spider veins and varicose veins can result in immense improvements for confidence and self-image. By extension, our clients who do have a consultation for diagnosing and treating varicose veins are also able to feel more comfortable in the social workout setting.
This one step towards improving appearance can then lead to larger measures for taking care of health and physical expression. Overall, clients who undergo a procedure for varicose or spider vein treatment do find that it changes their entire outlook on lifestyle.
Individuals who want to take control over their appearance are invited to contact Sutton Place Laser Vein Care to find out about the options that are available for treating spider veins or removing varicosities. An in depth consultation can even pinpoint areas where problems may arise in the future, and allow us to develop a viable plan of intervention before the vessels have an undue effect on wellbeing.
